Frasers Property UK is proud to announce that its six business parks have collectively raised over [£2,000] cash for a selection of charities through a series of Christmas-themed fundraising events.
Onsite teams from Winnersh Triangle, Chineham Park, Farnborough Business Park, Watchmoor Business Park, Hillington Park and Maxis held occupier wreath-making events and Christmas jumper days to support charities including Guide Dogs UK, Save The Children and many more local charities.
Each business park also had their own individual initiatives. At Farnborough Business Park, 360 gifts were donated to six local charities: Step by Step, Sandyhill Project, Dial-A-Ride / Meals on Wheels, The Mayors Charity, Henry Tyndale School and Frimley Park Hospital. The park also hosted a three-day Christmas market which brought together occupiers, local businesses and the community to raise further funds for charity. Throughout 2019, Farnborough Business Park has raised an amazing £17,638 for various local and national charities.
At Winnersh Triangle, occupiers and staff collected over 400 gifts for KidsOut Giving Tree while at Chineham Park proceeds were raised through a Christmas wreath-making event supported local charity Naomi House & Jacksplace. Watchmoor Business Park also donated presents to KidsOut Giving Tree and held a Christmas Jumper Day. Meanwhile at Maxis in Bracknell, a Christmas present appeal was held for Sebastian’s Action Trust which saw over 200 presents donated.
CEO of Frasers Property UK, Ilaria del Beato commented: “At Frasers Property, people are at the heart of what we do. The events we organise at our business parks aim to build communities, and fund-raising activities such as these provide excellent opportunities for our occupiers to socialise with one another while giving to great local and national causes. I am heartened that through these events we have raised this money to help those in need. We remain committed to supporting our community and will continue to organise regular fundraising activities for our occupiers throughout 2020.”
